Residents of Houston's Montrose neighborhood may soon see another "ghost bike" as they pass through the intersection of Waugh and West Gray. That's where 24-year-old Chelsea Norman's body was found on Sunday night, December 1, after being struck by an unknown driver. Norman died in Memorial Hermann Hospital three days later, on Wednesday, even as the search for the driver who failed to stop and render aid continued.

Friends of Norman say she clocked out of the Whole Foods store where she worked at around 10:15 p.m. and was following her usual five-minute route home when she was struck from behind. Passersby who came upon the scene moments later said that her bicycle and personal effects were scattered for several yards across the street. Norman, who was not wearing a helmet, was found lying in the bike lane suffering from broken bones and head trauma. There were no witnesses to the incident itself.

Friends, coworkers and others in the Montrose area have erected a memorial to Norman near the site where she was found. HPD has asked that anyone who has any information about the incident call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS or contact the hit-and-run unit at 713-247-4065. Norman is the fourth Houston cyclist to die in a traffic accident in 2013.
